Clean and simple gift set

Today's SCS Limited Supplies challenge (LSC205) was to make a Clean and Simple card (CAS). I don't do these often. For some reason, if the card doesn't have lots of layers, ribbon, and bling, I feel like I am "short changing" the receiver. Silly, I know!

Anyway, my friend has her birthday this Sunday and I jumped on this chance to make her a set of cards. I love how they turned out! I am in love with punches and they made these cards really fast to make. I made all 5 in less than an hour!
The set includes 2 birthday cards, a baby boy and girl card and a Valentine's card for her DH. She doesn't check my blog, so I am safe to post them here!! LOL!

Check out the Martha Stewart punches!! She has the BESTEST punches. I just bought the Royal Butterfly yesterday and I am already in LOVE! Did you see the embossing/border punch combo on the bottom of the card on the right?? This was part of the blog candy I won from America (see this post)!!

Oh, and don't ask me why as posting pictures is a mystery to me. But, if you click on my pictures, they get bigger again!

Thanks for stopping by!
